So, this isn't exactly in the spirit of a "validated system", but could
you download the modules every time you need to use them? If you did
this, I would urge you to digitally sign your own copies and store them
on a server you control, rather than trusting a fresh copy from the
internet every time.

Best of luck.

Kind regards,
